eSciDoc Days 2010 in Copenhagen

19.10.2010
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure and Max Planck Society (MPG) invite to the third eSciDoc Days / presentation of eSciDoc infrastructure and applications / users tell about their experiences

On November 16 and 17, 2010, the third eSciDoc Days will be held at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event is held by FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure, and the Max Planck Society – Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL).

In a strategic partnership. the two organizations are developing an open source eResearch infrastructure for web-based scientific work in a multidisciplinary environment. eSciDoc supports the entire scientific value generation process, from the first idea to experiments, data analysis and evaluation, and the publication of the results.

The growing number of users who work with the eSciDoc software and develop applications that are based on it shows that eSciDoc is well accepted by the community. At this year‘s eSciDoc Days, existing applications from various scientific disciplines will be presented. Workshops and lectures with practical relevance will give a comprehensive overview of eSciDoc and how to employ it. Tutorials will give the participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with installing the eSciDoc infrastructure and developing eSciDoc applications. There is also room to discuss future developments with the experts from FIZ Karlsruhe and the MPDL.

The keynote speakers at this year‘s eSciDoc Days will give an overview of current developments in scientific communication: Birte Christensen-Dalsgaard from the University of Copenhagen will hold a lecture on “The change of scholarly communication - and some consequences“ and Dr. Laurent Romary, INRIA & HUB-IDSL, will talk about “Outlining a scholarly workbench - publication and data as a continuum”.

The program of the eSciDoc Days 2010 is available at https://www.escidoc.org/; registration deadline: October 22, 2010.

About eSciDoc
eSciDoc was funded within the scope of the German e-Science Initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as a joint project of FIZ Karlsruhe and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)) until 2009. Afterwards, the partners opened the project for the interested scientific public and signed a Memorandum of Understandig about their further co-operation and the further development of the software. The entire eSciDoc software is available as open source under the Common Development and Distribution License (CCDL).
About FIZ Karlsruhe
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure is a not-for-profit organization with the public mission to make sci-tech information from all over the world publicly available and to provide related services in order to support the national and international transfer of knowledge and the promotion of innovations.
Our business areas:
• STN International – the world’s leading online service for research and patent information in science and technology
• KnowEsis – innovative e-Science solutions to support the process of research in all its stages, and throughout all scientific disciplines

• Databases and Information Services – Databases and science portals in mathematics, computer science, crystallography, chemistry, and energy technology

FIZ Karlsruhe is a member of the Leibniz Association (WGL) which consists of 86 German research and infrastructure institutions.

About the Max Planck Digital Library
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a service institution within the Max Planck Society. Its aim is to develop a modern electronic infrastructure for supplying scientists with information; secure, long-term data storage; publication of research results following the principles of open access; and ditital, web-based research and collaboration.
The MPDL has the following tasks:
• To ensure the basic supply of the Max Planck institutes with electronic publications and publication databases.
• To assist the Max Planck institutes in creating digital and web-based research environments.
• To provide a repository for publications by the Max Planck institutes and to assist them, if necessary, in the digital editing of scientific raw data.

• To support the president of the Max Planck Society within the scope of the Max Planck Society’s open access policy and other tasks of scientific political relevance.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
